What Is Platonic Love? Definition and Examples

Put simply, Platonic Love is love without physical attraction. It was never called this by Plato himself (for whom it was named), but it is a form of love he discussed extensively.

Some other forms of love that would fall into the “Platonic” category are Agape love, Philia love, and more, since these forms of love don’t generally involve a physical component.

You can find an example of this in the movie I Love You Man, which is a movie about a couple of crazy kids who meet and fall in love, platonically, and become best friends.
